he said that In the third Test, Pant may be included in the playing 11, while Umesh Yadav may get a chance in place of injured Mohammad Siraj.
India Playing XI for Cape Town Test, Wasim Jaffer: Wasim Jaffer said on InsideCricket show that ‘I don’t think the team management will throw out Rishabh Pant. He is definitely the X-factor for Team India. He is the match winner. There must have been only one communication between Virat and Rahul Dravid on how to proceed an innings. If it was only based on wicketkeeping skills, Wriddhiman Saha would have been in the team but Pant is above him as he can bat well too.
Indian team would like to create history
In the third final Test of the series to be played in Cape Town, the Indian team will go with the intention of creating history by winning the series. If India wins the last Test, it will be their first Test win in Cape Town and their first Test series win in South Africa. Amidst all these possibilities, Pant is sure to get a place in the third Test. Hanuma Vihari may have done well in the second Test but Kohli is sure to sit on the bench when he comes.
India Playing XI for Cape Town Test, Umesh yadav, Mohammad Siraj, IND vs SA: Wasim Jaffer told InsideSport.in that the obvious option is to leave Hanuma Vihari. It will be a bit harsh for him because I thought he played really well in the second Test. But I think the kind of innings that Pujara and Rahane played, you cannot leave them. In such a situation, with the return of Virat Kohli, Vihari will have to go out.
Wasim Jaffer selected playing for the third test – 11
1. KL Rahul
2. Mayank Agarwal
3. Cheteshwar Pujara
4. Virat Kohli
5. Ajinkya Rahane
6. Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper)
7. R Ashwin
8. Shardul Thakur
9. Mohammed Shami
10. Umesh Yadav
11. Jasprit Bumrah
Ishant has to sit on the bench
India Playing XI for Cape Town Test, Umesh yadav, Mohammad Siraj, IND vs SA: The situation is not very good with Mohammad Siraj. He has 2 days to recover from a hamstring injury and that is not enough time. Wasim Jaffer said that I think Umesh Yadav will be included in the playing 11 in his place. This means that Ishant Sharma will once again be seated on the bench, which is nearing the end of his career.
Umesh can swing
India Playing XI for Cape Town Test, Wasim Jaffer: Jaffer said that there is not much to choose between Ishant and Umesh. Ishant doesn’t have the pace now, but he can use his experience and be effective with his height against left-handers. For Umesh, he is quick and can swing the ball. All India can decide between the two by going to the net session.

- The Newlands pitch has traditionally helped the fast bowlers with some swing.
- The cold air coming from the nearby sea carries moisture and is helpful for the fast bowlers.
- Umesh Yadav bowls at 140kph+ and gets the outswing which can be very effective in those conditions.
- The other factor that works for Umesh Yadav is his aggressive intent. Like Mohammad Siraj, Umesh Yadav likes to attack the batsman with full-length deliveries at speeds in excess of 140 kmph, forcing the batsman to drive and make mistakes.
- Ishant Sharma on the other hand is a defensive bowler who prefers to keep the scoring under control rather than forcing the batsman to make mistakes. Umesh can be a powerful bowler with the series.
